Years ago as a new mom living on a social service salary, I desperately needed affordable child care for my son so that I could continue to work full time. Family members on either side were out of town and no one was available for us to tap into. A colleague told me about a wonderful program that JCFS (than JCB) was running offering specialized home daycare to those who qualified at an amazing low cost weekly fee! I made a call, filled out some paperwork and after agreeing to seeing a counselor consistently to discuss early parenting challenges I might be encountering, my son was able to attend a nurturing, home day care environment 5 days a week for the next year and a half! That program was a blessing for me and my family and my child got such loving, consistent care there. I will always be grateful!

JCFS provides incredibly holistic services to their clients. Their attention to the individual needs of each family is incredible. it is rare to find professionals in the disability field that are not burnt out and continue to care so deeply and give great thought to the growing demands of all families. The staff also continue to make changes to their programming to reflect the evolving needs of families and the disability field. They work tirelessly, committed to serving families from all cultural and socio-econmic means.

The families I have referred to the agency have thrived as a result of the services they have received

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would give JCFS more money if I had it to continue to do great work!
